Wel-Fairness (Part II)

(continued from Planes, Trains, Automobiles, and Welfare States) The question of when an individual should be protected from a risk, of course, comes down to economics.  It is obvious to most of us now that paying for someone’s food by giving out food stamps or paying for social security and Medicare when we are all […]

Planes, Trains, Automobiles, and Welfare States (Part I)

Posted on: Sep. 18, 2012  |  By: Ronnie Kahn  |  Category: General

When Mitt Romney said that nearly half of Americans “believe they are victims” and are dependent on the government, he is tapping into not just should government be large or small but the hot button issue of whether government’s role can help protect its citizens from some of the risks that can confront us.  It […]

The Wealth Conspiracy

Posted on: May. 8, 2012  |  By: Ronnie Kahn  |  Category: General

It’s in your food supply.  It affects your health.  The Fed Chairman does it.  Robin Hood did it.  Dying people must deal with it.  The 1% get their share but so do single Moms.  You can find it in merit scholarships.  It was behind the Cold War.  It pits the old against the young and […]

Occupy New Mind

This was a sign from the Occupation movement in Los Angeles.  The top of the sign reads “15 years ago we had” (Photo by Harlin Kahn) When the Arab Spring populist movement came about, it was not only about changing the type of government but also about jobs.  This translates to a demand for a […]

The Ancient Wisdom of Uncertainty

Europe is on the brink.  They’re goin’ down.  No wait.  They can contain it.  We’re okay for now.   Gee, it’s only Greece.  No wait.  It may spread to Spain and Italy.  Everyone watches and tries to gage where this is all going.  The markets are pacified one day and panicked the next.  What everyone knows […]

Substance Abuse and the Internet

When was I in junior high school, otherwise now known as middle school, my heart would delight when I would see the AV kids (that’s audio-visual for the uninitiated) there when I entered a room.  This would mean that there, in the back of the room, was a projector that would show us a film.  […]

The Great Gapsby

Posted on: Jun. 28, 2011  |  By: Ronnie Kahn  |  Category: General

Living in Los Angeles, I am inundated with stories in the papers about Frank McCourt, the owner of the Dodgers baseball team.   His fate seems to also be aligned with the other news in the form of the nefarious Momar Gadhafi of Libya as they both try to cling to power with institutional forces trying […]

The Satisfied Skunk

Posted on: May. 31, 2011  |  By: Ronnie Kahn  |  Category: General

Around twenty years ago, I started out in the financial services industry.  While my goal was to become a Certified Financial Planning practitioner, I had to go through the courses and pass that exam in order to start my own firm.   In the meantime, I started learning the ropes while hoping at the time that […]

Unconditional Love and Money

Posted on: May. 3, 2011  |  By: Ronnie Kahn  |  Category: General

Re-imagining Money as a Fair Tender There is a quote by William Faulkner that “History isn’t dead; it’s not even past.”  There is a lot of talk that with the U.S. national debt where it is, this unsustainable level will bring the U.S. and its currency down. In this context, I would like to rework […]
